Directions

  1. Heat half the canola oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute garlic and chile peppers in hot oil until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken to the wok. Stir half the soy sauce and half the cumin into the chicken mixture; cook just until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl, retaining some of the drippings in the skillet and return to heat.
  2. Heat remaining oil in the skillet with the retained drippings. Stir onion with the remaining soy sauce and cumin into the oil mixture; cook and stir until the onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes to the onion mixture; cook and stir until the tomatoes begin to soften, about 1 minute.
  3. Return chicken mixture to the wok; add green beans and vinegar. Cook and stir the mixture until the green beans are tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and sprinkle cilantro over the mixture; toss to mix.

I loved the flavour of soy, cumin, cilantro and vinegar in this dish. I did some modifications based on my preferences ( I never saute plain chicken...it must always be marinated or seasoned because I find it too bland otherwise). The base and combination of flavours and ingredients were new to me and that is why I am giving this a 5. AND it's pretty healthy!!So, I sauteed the chicken first (seasoned and marinated for a 4 hours with salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, soy sauce and the vinegar) then I took it out, and sauteed the onions, garlic, peppers and rest of the sauce and seasoning with the green beans until they softened...about 8-10 minutes adding the tomatoes, chicken and cilantro towards the end to heat through. Sorry to modify as the first reviewer but I really wanted to review and tell you I never would have thought to throw these things together so this recipe deserves 5 stars and for people to give it a try! Thanks!!
